Bakhtari Gabbeh sampler

Broujen, Char Mahal valley, southern Iran


1.2 m by 1.6 m

Spectacularly sumptuous and vibrant natural colours; tough and hard wearing hand spun wool. Finely woven for a gabbeh, this was specially commissioned for our buyer twenty years ago on his first visit to Iran.

It was used to get accurate colours in future commisions, some of which appear on this site.

Bakhtari gabbehs are a cut above even the superb (and more famous) Qashqai gabbehs and put the commercial Iranian, Indian and Chinese varieties firmly in the shade!
